Standard linetypes inadequate

Could we have some more standard linetypes with greater gradation of scales? We have CENTER and CENTER2(.5x), why not some more like CENTER3(.2x) and CENTER4(.1x)? Then we could avoid linetype scale overrides to get dashed lines to look right, which mucks up your details when you go to a smaller scale. Then I could exchange drawings with my engineer without explaining how to load my custom linetypes.

Why not copy your custom linetypes to his computer?

He probably wouldnt know how to load the linetypes, and why should I have to spend all day explaining this to him?. The real question is, why am I paying $5000 for a program that doesnt have these basic features already built into it?

The ability is 'built-in', you do the building and putting in: if you deal with someone that cannot perform the task, find someone that does. Plenty of smart engineers on the planet that can use AutoCAD :smileyhappy: -- Dean Saadallah Add-on products for LT http://www.pendean.com/lt --

AutoDesk's attitude has in the past seemed to be that they are furnishing you the tools to work with and it is up to you to customize them to do what you want, unlike some other programs that furnished the program and it really took a programmer to make usefull changes. Like making a wrench but if you want a bend in it you could heat it up and make the bend yourself. With the new CUI, I'm not sure this is still so but as I've not had first hand experience with it, only from reading the threads, this might have changed for extensive customization.
